I'm suffering really badly from Shin Splints...I obviously can't rest, any other advice?!

As shin splints are generally an overuse injury, the first step should always be to reduce both the volume and intensity of your training. You can supplement this training reduction with low impact cross training activities such as swimming or cycling to maintain your cardiovascular fitness.

It's better to take a couple of weeks off from training (even in the lead up to an event) than to risk worsening the injury and putting yourself out of action completely. In the meantime you can reduce inflammation by icing the affected area, and it's always a good idea to try some light stretches and foam rolling if you haven't already.

I've started running again after a long time off. I'm taking it easy and building up using a run/walk routine. I went for a run last week, the run felt good but woke up the next morning with the a very sore knee and a very tender inside tendon on my right knee. Any ideas as to what I've done?
